Conserve the Environment
The planet’s natural resources are not infinite. They will eventually get depleted, especially if we use them recklessly. We can help make the world more sustainable by being more energy efficient.
Numerous energy efficient technologies and policies have enabled the United States to use 56% less energy today compared to two decades ago. Without this improved efficiency, the US would have imported and consumed more than double the amount of oil, natural gases, coal, and other energy sources.
Energy consumption sometimes produces emissions that are harmful to the environment. Advancements in energy efficiency technologies and innovations have led to lower and cleaner energy consumption which leads to decreased pollution. The US alone prevents more than 1.1 gigatons of greenhouse gas emissions per year thanks to the significant investments it has made in energy efficiency.
The earth is the only planet we’ve got and it is our duty to preserve it. Recycling to minimize the production of waste has all been the most popular means of protecting the environment.
